I mean, he's AI. He doesn't have a 'personality', or any quality I've ever particularly found enjoyable in stories.
Yes, he's a formidable opponent and could have an 'army'. But personally I just find him kind of boring
Maybe I just haven't read/seen the best stories. I dunno.
so how "human" vs. "robotic" should movie brainiac look? bear in mind if people want "a-list" actors, then he's going to have to look more human than not..
I also want to see other villains in at least a subplot sequence- Toyman can be put to good use.. Same with Parasite.
Darkseid can be alerted to the presence of Earth by the activities of Zod and company..
